Additional copies, binding, laminating, or other production services that I can not produce myself, at my cost (Kinko's) + 20%. For example, if you want your score on archival bond and bound with printed graphics on a card stock cover, the finished product will be produced at Kinko's or another reputable copy shop.

Generally, 8.5x11 will have about 5 measures/ page portrait and 8 measures/ page landscape, with two 5 - staff systems in portrait view. 11x17 will have about 8 measures/ page portrait, 10 measures/ page landscape. Obviously, the more detailed the music, the more space it will require. Readability and clarity will take precedence over all other considerations.

What is needed for work to begin:

Score or source document

Specific Deadline. We do not work on a "get to it when you can" schedule. Specific deadlines will help eliminate many misunderstandings. Also, we are very fast, but the deadlines must be realistic.

Phone numbers Home, Cell, Pager This is very important!! If we have questions, we need to be able to reach you.

Written confirmation of instrumentation, page size, deadlines, various and sundry details relating to this specific project, and exactly what you are expecting.

Each project will have many considerations that are specific to the work you want done. We will need to talk either in person or by phone to discuss the details. At this point, we can make an estimate and begin work with a 50% deposit.

When work is completed, you will receive proofs, your original, and final products. You will also receive an invoice for the total fee less your initial deposit. The invoice is payable upon receipt.
